So I Decided to Build a Bed

Sorry, not a traditional build post here: just don't have it in me this time. Anyway, decided to change it up a little and build a "Shaker Inspired" bed
Big Grin

A few shots of the progress so far. I was forming the offset tenon on the end one of the side rails this morning. I will probably post more details on the headboard joinery as work progresses. Stay tuned for more exciting developments!

Thanks gents!

Cut the mortise in the front post for the side rail and got a righteous fit between mortise and tenon! Some pics of mortises and tenons for headboard. More to come!

First bed bolt is in: the rest should be a cake walk (he says naively).

Nice bed, but the bear pic is even better!

No slight to the bed intended.
...Naval Aviators, that had balz made of brass and the size of bowling balls, getting shot off the deck at night, in heavy seas, hoping that when they leave the deck that the ***** is pointed towards the sky and not the water.

That is a very unique rack. Nice progress on the head board as well.
